Like Edvard Grieg, whom the Scandinavians long refused to recognize, the Italians’ disregard for Verdi persisted for a decade after his critical acclaim in France and Austria.

(A) illogical comparison between Edvard Grieg and Italian's disregard
(B) illogical comparison as in A
"who" is wrong, "whom" is needed bcz "Edvard Grieg" is the object; so objective pronoun is needed
(C)changes the meaning.. it seems that Edvard Grieg himself refused recognition
illogical comparison as in A
(D) illogical comparison: Scandinavians is compared with Italian's disregard
(E) Like the Scandinavians’ long refusal to recognize Edvard Grieg,
Scandinavians' long refusal is compared correctly with Italians' disregard

Wrong Comparision. Here in the above sentence Edvard Grige (human being) is compared to Italian's (Something possessed by People of Italy).
A,B,C and D all are wrong because of the reason stated above

Only option E compares human to human
Hence E
